ABSTRACT
Autogenous bone grafts have been considered the gold standard for bone grafting procedures. This case report describes the management of a two wall defect by utilizing the autogenous bone graft obtained during removal of ledges as a part of osteoplasty procedure. The bone was removed with a sickle scaler, and sufficient amounts of bone graft material were obtained to fill a two wall defect distal to left mandibular first molar.

Mentions: A 37-year-old male patient reported to the Department of Periodontology Government Dental College, Calicut with a chief complaint of bleeding from gums and bad breath of 3 months duration. On clinical examination, generalized moderate to deep periodontal pockets and bleeding on probing was noticed. Radiographic examination revealed generalized bone loss. Based on the history, clinical and radiographic findings, the patient was diagnosed with chronic generalized periodontitis. Six weeks after performing thorough scaling and root planning and following a strict plaque control regime, the case was reevaluated. Since the pocket depth was 7 mm distal to 36, it was decided to proceed with flap surgery [Figure 1].
